Don Pancho Origenes 18 Year
Don Pancho // Panama
Don Pancho Origenes 18 is a blend of rums aged a minimum of 18 years in American oak casks from Kentucky. Francisco Jose Fernandez Perez, also known as “Don Pancho” has over 50 years experience as a master blender and distiller; when he found the perfect mix of quality sugar and aging environment in Panama, he started his own distillery, aging and blending cellar there. The still is a copper column still, the last known functioning still, of its kind, in the world. The lengthy aging is constantly monitored and blended with the age statement referring to the minimum age of each rum in the final blend.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

"The aromas begin with clean honey, excellently extracted tea, soft/ripe tree fruit and interesting spices playing in the background. The palate entry is sweet and supple starting at vanilla, building to brown spice, caramel, and roasted nuts. The finish is long, rich and layered. The sumptuous depth and inviting complexly make this a lovely rum."
